France says election underway in Syria ‘sham’ by ‘oppressive regime’
Syria’s Parliamentary elections on Wednesday are a “sham” organized by “an oppressive regime,” France’s foreign ministry said on, adding that viable elections could only take place after a political transition and new constitution.
“France denounces this shame of an election organized by the regime,” Foreign ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said on Wednesday.
“They are being held without campaigning, under the auspices of an oppressive regime and without international observation.”
Nadal said only elections as part of a UN resolution would pave the way for a transition in the country would be valid.
